My thread on the interim decision of the Swiss Federal Tribunal in the @caster800m case.

Full decision in French at bger.ch/ext/eurospider…

It highlights key features of the #LexSportiva & the ‘complicity’ of Swiss law in sheltering it from review.

1. The #SFT reminds us that its control of #CAS awards is narrow. Hence, it orders interim measures only if it is ‘very likely’ that an appellant will prevail.

This is because Swiss law is traditionally favourable to international arbitration.

2. This is extremely problematic because #CAS arbitration unlike international arbitration is in general not based in consent (see ECtHR in #Pechstein) and should not enjoy the same quasi-immunity from state control.
